Hi, I was finally able to get on here! Yeah! Thank you Uncle Dennis for staying with it, and not giving up! We here in sunny Colorado are all doing well.
Katie will be a freshman next year! Wow how fast they grow up. This is her and a couple of her friends in front of our house going to her 8th grade dance a few weeks ago.
Andy is living on his own with 2 other friends, and is of course loving it. It took awhile, but he is starting to appreciate at least some of the little things Mom and Dad did for him, like feed him and buy milk!
I realize it's not fun getting old, and why some old fogies are just that- old fogies. I have arthritis in my hands, and my body is just well... lets just say, it's feeling it's age. I also have daily epiphanies, that cause me to know why adults said things, like: "Oh well, your still young" when I was in my 20s and 30s. Funny how your kids getting older ages and enlightens you.
We do have a new addition to our family. We have adopted a little black dachshund that somebody had used as a baby factory before she was a year old, and literally threw away. When she was found, she was very, very sick. She was nursed back to health by a vet who could not keep her. A friend told us about her, and she is now a happy, safe secure little girl. She is 2 1/2 years old, and very sweet. She gets along with everybody. We have named her Peeko.
I hope all is well with everybody back "home". I will try to post more on here now that I can get on!
We love you all!
